Just Accepted NanoLetters: Stokes et al-Copper Silicide Nanowires as Hosts for Amorphous Si Deposition as a Route to Produce High Capacity Lithium-ion Battery Anodes

https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.nanolett.9b03664 Killian StokesHugh GeaneyMartin SheehanDana BorsaKevin M. Ryan* Herein, copper silicide (Cu15Si4) nanowires (NWs) grown in high densities from a metallic Cu substrate are utilized as nanostructured hosts for amorphous silicon (aSi) deposition. The conductive Cu15Si4 NW scaffolds offer an increased surface area, versus planar substrates, and enable the preparation of high capacity Li-ion anodes […]
